I’m pleased as punch!
So pleased and thrilled that I’ve opened a bottle of Soju to celebrate, my poor health notwithstanding.
Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s lovely film Ram Leela has done remarkably well at the U.S. box office.
Pssst, Ram Leela has done better than even the super-hero film Krrish 3.
For the opening November 15-17, 2013 weekend, Ram Leela raked in $1.45 million at the U.S. box office!
Ram Leela is a fine film and deserves all the accolades and riches at the box office.
As the peerless SI wrote last week after watching Ram Leela at a theatre on the U.S. East Coast:

If you haven’t watched Ram Leela, all I can say is you’re missing out on the rare Bollywood film worth watching.
